after weeks of legal back and forth, the state's allowed to use a federal database to remove noncitizens from the voter rolls. critics say this process targets poor and minority voters. but florida's governor says it's going to help improve the election process. john zarrella reporting from miami. >> reporter: for months state of florida wrangling with the federal government over access to a federal database. now this federal database has lists of people who are in the country legally but not eligible to vote. well, over the weekend, florida and the department of homeland security finally arrived at an agreement which will allow florida access to that database so that it can go through and look for people in the state who probably shouldn't be on the voter rolls. now, governor rick scott said this morning on cnn that this was, in fact, an important step. >> i don't know anybody, any supervisor of election or anybody in the state thinks nonu.s. citizens ought to be voting our races. it's good for all of the citizens. >> reporter: officials will have to be trained on exactly how to use tha

's nomination, how far will he go to win the white house? will ferrell and zach galifianakis are with us like to talk about their new movie. wolf blitszer is off. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." >>> right now mitt romney's on his way home from an overseas trip his campaign is calling a great success even though it generated embarrassing headlines at every stop. latest came today in poland when one of romney's top aides cursed at reporters asking questions. one of them was our jim acosta, who joins us from warsaw. jim, what happened today that the romney team sounds upbeat despite all that's been going on? >> reporter: well, joe, a senior romney advisor told reporters here in warsaw that mistakes do happen out on the campaign trail. but when asked what mistakes were made on this overseas trip, that advisor couldn't name any. instead the campaign says the world got to hear from a candidate who they say speaks from the heart. it's the image mitt romney has wanted voters to see for the last week. the gop contender walking tall on the world stage here visiting poland's tomb of the u
? >> definitely seen gradual changes as i'm sure you have. look, i've had to use my former cheerleading voice many times to get a question to presidents and to candidates for president. but i've had to do that more and more as has jim over the years because, look, i mean it's just the world that we live in from their perspective that with twitter, the internet, with everything going viral immediately, it's hard for them to say anything without altering the message that they're trying to get out that day. having said that, it is frustrating having been a reporter on several presidential campaigns, you're there, you're going on the bus, you're going off the bus, you're sitting through every speech. and you want to have access to the candidate to be able to ask them questions. and especially at the end of a trip like this where you're really going full bore and you don't have a chance to ask anything, that's what happens when you really try to ask. and you have to be careful of your surroundings, but you got to do your job. >> gloria, and i have to ask you, in the big picture, how important is this r
i want to bring in ed lavandara who is joining us from centennial, colorado. ed, walk us through the charges that he is faced with. >> sure thing, suzanne. essentially, james holmes has been charged with 142 criminal counts. 24 counts of first-degree murder and 116 counts of attempted murder, and essentially, that is doubled up on the number of victims inside of that movie theater. remember, 12 people killed an 58 people who were wound and taken to hospitals. now the legal reason behind that according to the paperwork we have received is that they were able to file double the charges on each of those victims, because number one, prosecutors say it was a planned attack, and premeditated and also because james holmes showed an extreme indifference towards the people he was killing, and that is that he did not matter who he was killing, but shooting indiscriminantly into the movie theater. because off that, that gives them the legal basis to file double the counts against james holmes. there is also one count of possessing explosives and one count which is a sentence enhancer becaus
's going on in this case now. >> ed lavandera on the scene for us as he's been right from the beginning. thank you. elsewhere, in maryland, police say the fbi are now investigating an abduction with ties to the baseball legend cal rib ken jr. his mother was found safe this morning almost 24 hours after being taken from her home at gunpoint. cnn's lisa sylvester's working the story for us. what happened here, lisa? >> hi there, wolf. what we know is this all started about 7:00, 8:00 yesterday morning when a man apparently approached and went to violet ripken's house and abducted her at gunpoint. he then according to authorities spent most of the day driving around in her car throughout central maryland. and it was only until around 8:30 last night when there was a citizen in the neighboring county, in baltimore county, who saw a suspicious vehicle. he called it in to county authorities. and at that point it was that tip that eventually led to violet ripken being found this morning unharmed back near her house in aberdeen. she was however bound. authorities at this point are not clear wha
's ed lavandera is in aurora for us. ed, what do we know about this package? >> reporter: well, we're still trying to gather information on what exactly is inside that package, wolf. but as you mentioned that law enforcement official telling cnn that on monday police and fbi discovered a package that was apparent apparently sent by james holmes, the 24-year-old suspected gunman. now it's unclear obviously if this package was indeed sent by him, it was clearly sent before he was taken into custody. it arrived at some point on monday at the university mail room. we've also been told by hospital officials over the last couple of days this is something we've been monitoring for some time that there were two packages that were suspicious and were being looked into, one found in the mail room and also one that was actually delivered to a university professor. so we've been trying to nail down more information on this. and we'll continue to do so, wolf. >> what's the university of colorado saying about all of this, ed? >> reporter: well, now that the details have come out that this packag

of the techniques that the local authorities and federal authorities used to get around the booby traps, the meant went through the window. you saw at that video, them working through the video and they used robots to go inside instead of a person at risk and they used water not only to surround explosives, but used a water blast to short out that main control panel. ultimately, there was a point where the situation was deemed safe enough where people could go inside and gather up some of the rigged explosives. some of those were fireworks rigged specially picked up and put into a dump truck filled with sand and driven to a remote location south of aurora here. and ultimately, those fireworks, the other type of makeshift explosives, were destroyed in a controlled manner. and then the evidence started coming out of the apartment. about 8 p.m. local time people saw laptop computer and a hard drive come out of this apartment and that should prove to be a treasure trove in terms of evidence. diaries this guy wrote and plans laid out and investigators are hoping to find a path of that on the computer a

, the numbers aren't so close. let's go straight to cnn's joe johns. he's breaking the numbers for us. he's in des moines, iowa, right now. tell our viewers what we're seeing, joe. >> reporter: wolf, there's certainly a lot more to this than meets the eye. the main takeaway is mitt romney is running ahead of the president in some of the states that matter most. conservatives are still shaking their heads. >> it was really a shock. >> i'm dispinted at their position. they came to a position. >> how could one of their own on the supreme court side with liberals onto uphold the institutionalty of the democrat's health care plan. in many ways it was still a conservative decision. >> this was a conservative judicial philosophy that says the role of the courts is to be the last resort, not the first resort. we only strike something down when it's a big piece of regulation if we absolutely have to. that's still quite conservative. >> and this type of thinking shouldn't be a surprise. >> wrong piece there running, obviously. the takeaway on our poll is even though the president maintains a slight
. it required him to use up almost all of his political capital. he prevailed where no president had done before. he was right. he was right. he cut $100 billion from the federal debt over the next 10 years. he provided access to affordable health care to 30 million americans, 8 million black americans who would never have had insurance. [applause] this is a man, this is a president who has the character of his convictions. almost never since he has taken office, during this entire time, has the republican congress reached across the aisle to help. on the recovery act, which kept us from sliding further into depression, only three republican senators and not one house member voted for it. on the affordable care act, no republican in the senate and none in the house on the final vote. but it was not just on the big- signature issues, it was on the easy, obvious things where we got no cooperation. extending the payroll tax, only seven republicans initially voted for it. lilly ledbetter equal pay, three republicans voted for it in the house. when we attempted to raise the debt limit to maintain the
case scenario for all of us in the region is when you get full-out civil war, there is no coming back. if it breaks down, if civil order breaks down to the point of no return, then it will take years to fix syria. and i have a feeling that we're seeing the signs of that over the past three weeks. the only people that can bring us back from that brink is obviously the president and the regime. and i believe this is the last chance that they have. >> my exclusive interview with king abdullah will air during our next hour during our 5:00 p.m. eastern hour here in "the situation room." you're going to want to hear what he has to say about syria a lot more detail. also, we spoke about mitt romney and barack obama in the interview. he's got some serious thoughts about these two individuals. >>> let's get to the presidential race right now. in today's republican triple play in ohio, not only is mitt romney campaigning there, so are two men getting mentioned, lots of mentions in fact, as possible running mates. the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, and the former florida governor, jeb bush. c
labott is joining us live with the very latest. bulgarians are of course investigating. i'm sure the israelis are as well. first of all, what are the bulgarians saying? >> reporter: well, wolf, forensic investigators on the scene. it's all very preliminary at this point, but they're saying that this was caused by a bus bomb already placed inside the bus. that's really all they know, but they're not ruling anything out. they say it's possibly a terrorist attack. obviously the israelis saying they're sure of it. but bulgarians not ruling anything in, not ruling anything out at this point, wolf. >> didn't take very long for the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu to directly blame iran for this attack. >> reporter: that's right. a short time ago prime minister netanyahu, wolf, put out a statement saying all signs are leading to iran, his defense minister just spoke to reporters a short time ago. let's take a listen to what he said. >> this is clearly a terrorist attack initiated by hezbollah, hamas, jihad or any other group under the terror of iran or other radical muslim g

in virginia. whatever you want to talk about regarding the performance of your governor. by all means, give us a call, e- mail, or tweet. host: thank you. hooray for c-span. my governor is rick scott. i did not vote for him. i think he is doing a good program -- he is a good job. we have a program for future scholarships. the state will subsidize the education based on your grade point average. but that was what obama was trying to do with the tax reform as well. it is pretty ironic that when a republican doesn't, it is not ok. when a democrat does it, it is ok. those not in washington can find it online. the headline is a list of u.s. citizens. the federal government has agreed to let a lot enforcement database challenge the people's right to vote if they are suspected of it -- of not been u.s. citizens. your thoughts of how the governor is handling that? caller: unbelievably think that is the right thing to do. i am a republican, but across party lines. i think if you're not a citizen, you should not be able to vote. host: next up is of red in charleston. caller: i do not support nikki haley
on the cayman islands. so what is it mitt romney doesn't want us to know? maybe it's in the tax returns he refuses to share, or the felony he might have commitmented by making false statements about his role at bain. we understand, mitt, sometimes the truth is tricky. tricky mitt. he's not a crook, right? moveon.org political action is responsible for the content of this advertisement. >> that ad will start running tomorrow in ohio, where mitt romney is scheduled to the campaign. romney campaigned today in pittsburgh, where he tried to do a donald trump impression without ever actually using the words, "birth certificate." >> in the past, people of both parties understood that encouraging achievement, encouraging success, encouraging people to lift themselves as high as they can, encouraging entrepreneurs, celebrating success instead of attacking it and denigrating makes america strong. that's the right course for this country. his course is extraordinarily foreign. >> while romney was visiting pittsburgh, celebrating his success, team obama chose to introduce a new television ad on pittsb
. and the choosers. you are picking the president for the rest of us. so that means you don't have the luxury of political apathy. we, those of us who live in the all too predictable ballot box behavior states, counting on you to get it right. first of all, don't be fooled by the optics that are meant to signal the candidates understand the lives of scalled ordinary people. you know, like buss with folksy tour names. rich guys pretending they ride the bus is not a signal that they understand your lives. neither is rolling up their cleaves or leaving their neck ties at home or eating pancakes or drinking a beer. you know how politicians show you they can relate to your lives? creating policies that make your lives better. pay attention to what they say to you, not just what they are showing you. and numbers like these, totally unacceptable from a pew poll showed 45% of americans are completely clueless about the supreme court's landmark decision on affordable care act. listen, if it's your vote that determines whether or not the rest of us get health care, swing states, i need to you do a litt

that chris christie will not be the running mate? >> the first thing it tells us is that chris christie isn't going to be the running mate. look, i think what it tells us is they understand that chris christie is a powerful force within this party. he is someone who kind of has the charisma, the zeal that mitt romney to be frank lacks. i think they want to elevate chris christie. one other thing about chris christie i think gets lost in this, he is the speak truth to power guy, the i'm going to tell it how it is. he is also a governor elected in 2009 in a blue state. let's not lose sight of that, either, the messaging it sends that republicans can and do win in states that tend to go to democrats on the presidential level. assuming that jamie's reporting is right, i have no reason to believe it isn't -- >> jamie's reporting is always dead on. take it from me. >> i believe that christie is an intriguing and probably a great pick. i think he's going to draw a huge amount of attention and he will use this, christie will use this i think to launch himself even higher in kind of the national str
on the attack against the president using really his own words instead of having to come up with a hurried vice presidential announcement. and, wolf, there are some tea leaves to read here. kelly aot said to be high on mitt romney's vice presidential search list, she is going to be appearing with mitt romney up in new hampshire tomorrow. the romney campaign announced that yesterday. wolf, i think it stands to reason that the campaign would not have announced this event, would not have said slooes going to be at this event up in new hampshire if they were going to somehow come out tomorrow and announce she's the vice presidential running mate. so i think that's an indication that perhaps this window before he goes to the olympics is closing and that the vice presidential announcement will come off the olympics are over, wolf. >> they haven't released his exact schedule yet. when he's going to be in london, israel, when he's heading back to the united states. he's going to poland as well. do we know any details about that? >> reporter: wolf, i can tell you right now that, yes, all three of those

strategies that racially neutral black politics -- black politicians have been using, and talk about the consequences of those strategies for present-day black politics. >> host: you would say it's more than about obama, though. he is a stroll figure, kind of instigated -- >> guest: it's way, way a lot more. i think history is very important to sort of figuring out what's going on at the moment. and so not only it's about what a grounding the rise of obama within history, i talk about shirley chisolm, jesse jackson, chicago politics, starting way back in 1928. with the first black congressman from the south side of chicago, and i talk about these ideological fissures in black -- this long history about the politics of resuspectability, looking at the need of black elite to raise up what i would describe the untalented 9/10th s in the black community to put a positive face to white america about racial progress, and so the rise of obama is within all these contexts, and sort of explains the 2008 race and what obama did as a candidate, particularly when he faced issues of race. it has
own in this race for the white house. jim acosta is joining us from boston right now. what's going on on this day as far as the republican presidential candidate, jim, is concerned? >> reporter: wolf, the back and forth in this campaign right now is all about four words the president said nearly a week ago, the words you didn't build that. the comment has the romney campaign building a new line of attack that is resonating with republicans. republicans hope it's a sign mitt romney is back in business. >> when the president said that, if you got a business, you didn't build it, come here and talk to brian. and you'll learn that in fact he did build this business. >> i take umbrage at the suggestion that people don't start and build businesses. >> now, i'm know some people that think what the president said was just a gaffe. it wasn't a gaffe. it was instead his ideology. >> reporter: on a day he was expected to stay behind closed doors, he was at a truck repair company near his boston headquarters to keep hammering a comment made by the president last friday. >> if you got a busines
romney willing to show is us the money? let's see why he is so qualified based on his declaration that he is a very good businessman. let's see it, mitt. >> let's see what carl had to say on "morning joe" about this. >> to quote a book title, i think romney's taxes are a game changer. it is extraordinary to have someone running for president that won't show his tax returns. he will have to show them. >> washington post abc poll asked about the handling of the campaign and how they are dealing with it. 20% of the republicans have an unfavorable view. independents said unfavorable more than favorable. could this be what sinks his presidential ambitions? >> i think it is extraordinary that this is a controversy mitt romney's doing. republicans will only go so far about his economic success because it is fundamental to their believes. he has waited until the summer when the news cycle is slower. he has people like us who have nothing more to do than to talk about the campaign other than mitt romney and who he is. we know who barack obama is. he made this issue front and center. it is the only

to let us know his whole apartment was booby trapped and if anyone opened that door, there would have been more carnage. >> it's interesting that he did that. the ultimate plan -->> i can't figure that out. >> i think his ultimate plan was to get away and when he was, then, caught in the movie theater parking lot, i'm not sure why he decided it was a good thing and decided to tell the police officers. otherwise, more lives would have been lost at his apartment complex. back to the court hearing for a minute, the bond will be set. obviously he's probably not going to get out on bond with the crimes that he's facing. it's not expected to last long at all and, of course, the prosecution has 72 hours to file formal charges. and they undoubtedly will release some of that evidence in the court hearing today but probably have enough evidence to be able to hold him. >> while we learn more about what will happen during the suspect's court appearance today, family, friends and loved ones came together to remember the 12 lives cut short on friday. and there are still victims fighting for their
